I have an Obsession

For as long as I can remember I’ve always been fascinated by odd photos..Well,beautiful and artistically odd.

Stuff that makes you wanna know the rest of the story in a picture.

My blog takes on many faces:style,art,parties,crazy shit.

But my main interest is photos of random stuff I like and I wanna share.

Like it or don’t..I don’t give a shit..

Mattel Getting On the 80’s Wagon with Barbie

Mattel has decided to hop on the 80’s bandwagon and create rockstars of the 80’s Barbies.

I dig it because I loved Joan Jett,Debbie Harry,and Cyndi Lauper.

I’ve always been a fan of the blonde bombshell named “Barbie”

Good to know Barbie isn’t as narrow minded as we all think she is.

She’s down for a little rock and roll,teased hair, and fishnets.

These Barbie Bitches are due out sometime in 2010.

Chau Har Lee is becoming known for her innovative and geometric designed shoes.

More like art for the feet.

These heels are so interesting and artistic to look at I would buy a pair just for

display purposes only.

Check out these new designs from Ms.Lee herself.

Lipstick Queen,Poppy King

  Who Hates Lipstick?

Not the woman below!

Poppy-King

Poppy King is the Lipstick Queen.

Well,not officially ,

But close enough!

Poppy has been a lover of lipstick ever since she was a Lipstick Princess!

Ms.King discovered her true passion for the beauty tube at the tender age of 18.

That’s when she decided she had enough of sticky gloopy poor excuses for lipstick

and lipstick’s that were pink and frosty.

Poppy wanted lipstick with more of an old Hollywood Glam, but with a modern twist.

Poppy  then decided to come  up with her own line  called “Poppy” at first (knowing nothing about the process of making lipstick).

Low and behold the birth of  a Lipstick Queen.

Poppy now has a cult following all over the globe.

I just discovered her  new line “LIPSTICK QUEEN”  myself and I’m already in love with just the packaging alone.

Ms.King has also written a book entitled:

“Lessons of a Lipstick Queen”

Which seems to be the bible for all of the Lipstick Queens  in training.

My hat goes off to you Ms.King.

You inspire me to continue working on my own line of cosmetics.

Summer Style For All Decades

t_20090507-15
 

 

Fashion this summer seems to be taking ideas from every decade this year.

From the long flowing maxi dresses of the 70’s

to the dreaded,but tastefully done this year, triangle styled jackets from the 80’s.

We all have seen fashion,hair,and makeup change as quick as the sun goes up and comes down.

But this summer seems to be a free for all.

Whatever decade you choose to summon up this summer through fashion is not considered a faux paux,

More of like a “I wear what I want when I want” mantra.

Just in case you need a little decade fashion help.

Here’s some of the most iconic pieces making a comeback this summer:

THE ROCK & ROLL YEARS:

THE DECADE: ’50s

THEN: Audrey Hepburn ruled the look with girlie prom dresses

 

kmk

NOW: The hourglass look is back with a sexy spin of pouty lips and take-me-to-bed hair.

THE SWINGING DECADE

THE DECADE: ’60s

THEN: Twiggy made the bambino- look her own

NOW: The skittish baby-doll dresses and shifts are ubiquitous as are mascara-ed eyes and fresh no-makeup faces.

THE ERA OF EXPLORATION

THE DECADE: ’70s

THEN: The ABBA girls rocked the ’70s with their flared jeans and feathered bangs.

maxi

NOW: Long maxi- dresses and jumpsuits worn with platforms and sunglasses glam up the equation, as does subtle makeup.

 

melanieg

THE POWER AGE

THE DECADE: ’80s

THEN: Melanie Griffith worked the power-look with her fierce shoulder padded suits and bold makeup.

Back-to-the-80s_shoulders

NOW: The inverted triangle silhouette is back,complete with wide shoulders,big hair and intense eye makeup.

DIGITAL DECADE

THE DECADE:’90s

THEN: The girls of 90210 were a big influence with bright,bold printed,and body hugging outfits that inspired the inner Beverly Hills broad in us all.

NOW: The same bold bright  prints are making a comeback.Along with banged long straight hair,vests and the ever so popular Doc Marten’s .



 

 


 

 


 

 

 


Jimmy Choo for H&M..

JIMMYCHOOHNM

Calling at Recessionista’s.

Jimmy Choo is in the building.

Well, H&M’s building’s at least.

 This Fall, British luxury label Jimmy Choo will bring a special limited collection to 200 selected H&M store across the globe. After infamous collaborations with designer brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, Matthew Williamson and Viktor&Rolf,  it is the first time H&M is teaming up with an accessory label. To celebrate this new bag and accessory collaboration, Jimmy Choo will extend its design vision creating women’s clothing. The collection will also feature a men’s collection of shoes, bags and men gadgets.

So,no more destroying the couch and searching for random change to add to the

Jimmy Choo shoe fund.

H & M  has come to the rescue.

Now if only Christian Louboutin would jump on the bandwagon!
